Africa Pharmacology Science Gateway
The main aim of the Africa Pharmacology Science Gateway (APSG) is to design, develop, test, implement and evaluate a concept for cost-effective virtual e-infrastructure for African medical science collaboration (e-science) focusing on biomedical and pharmacological sciences and clinical trials for improving African healthcare.
The specific objectives of the APSG are to: (i) make accessible tools for research and training in a manner that will ensure vibrancy in the North-Soutgh and South-Soutgh pharmacology research; (ii) provide an e-platform which will remove/reduce physical barriers in research collaboration across Africa; (iii) promote South-South collaboration, thus harvest of knowledge & technology acquired over years of North-South collaboration; (iv) build critical mass of pharmacology research leaders, and (v) build research capacity through training and mentoring of post-docs and middle career scientists to become independent research leaders.
For running APSG jobs, the Africa Grid Science Gateway is connected to Grid and Cloud resources belonging to the Africa & Arabia Regional Operation Centre.
